‘PROBE SANITATION FACILITIES,’ SAYS DA: THE HERALD

THE SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) should investigate sanitation facilities at schools in the Eastern Cape, the DA said yesterday.

DA spokesman Edmund van Vuuren said Education MEC Mandla Makhuphula had told the provincial legislature, in response to a DA question, that 1 049 schools in the Eastern Cape did not have proper toilet facilities.

“What we need now is a programme of action from the SAHRC to establish why in almost 20 years of governance 1 049 schools still do not have toilets,” Van Vuuren said. – Sapa
